Version 2.40

 

HIGHLIGHTS

 

GENERAL

  • Support added for the XY—Evolutions expansion, bringing over 100 more cards to the game. Cards from XY—Evolutions can be used in Versus Mode immediately and in tournaments beginning November 18.

 

TRAINER CHALLENGE

  • The Trainer Challenge area has received a visual makeover.
  • The 4-star scoring system for each Trainer has been simplified. You now earn a star each time you defeat a particular Trainer with a different theme deck, rather than making gradual progress through a variety of game actions.

COLLECTION

  • Theme decks you don’t already own are now automatically opened when received. Additional copies of theme decks you already own are received unopened.

 

TRADE

  • Unopened theme decks that are tradable can now be included in Public and Private trade offers.

 

SHOP

  • Code cards found in physical XY—Evolutions products can be redeemed now in the Shop or at pokemon.com/tcgo.
  • XY—Evolutions booster packs and theme decks will be available in the Shop beginning November 2.
